Replacement Towel Bar Installation Instructions
Installation requires sitting one spring end in the towel bar bracket, depressing the opposite spring end with a finger, positioning it in front of the opposite towel bar bracket and then releasing the spring end.
This process is for replacing a towel bar where the ceramic or porcelain posts or holders cannot be removed from the wall.
To start if your bar is still in place you can use a hacksaw to cut the bar to remove it. Next you will need to take a tape measure and measure between your posts from inside to inside. Once you have that measurement you will need to order the Next size up replacement bar.
If its 12” or less, you will order an 18” bar. If it is over 12” but fewer than 24” you will need a 24” bar. If it is over 24” but less than 36” you will need to order a 36” bar.
You will notice that the ends have a spring in them. You will want to remove one spring end. Next place the side with the spring still in it into one of the holders then compress the spring and take a pencil and make a mark just on the bar just inside of the opposite holder.
Now that we have a mark where we need to cut it we can take a hacksaw and cut it. Once it is cut to our desired length we will reinstall the spring end . With both spring ends installed we can now install the new bar. Place one end into one of the ceramic posts and push the bar that way to compress the spring.
Next take your finger and depress the spring on the opposite side and then slide it into the opposite ceramic post letting the spring out.
With the bar now in both ceramic posts move the bar back and forth within the posts to let the bar center itself. You will need to do this so that way it is not relying on the spring ends to hold the weight of whatever you place on the bar. With the bar centered that’s it you have just installed a replacement towel bar for a towel bar that uses ceramic posts or holders.
